Kentucky Farm Bureau News - June 2011


Consumers are more curious about their food than ever before. Where does it come from? How was it produced? When was it harvested and processed? Are there health risks?  And they have questions about farming practices like raising animals in buildings, growing crops from genetically-altered seed, spraying animal wastes on fields and so on.

We asked farmers to address some of the common questions raised by those who are unfamiliar with agriculture. Farming practices have indeed changed dramatically over the years. Today's agriculture is far more complex. But what hasn't changed is the farmers' commitment to produce quality products under high standards of stewardship. right-arrow June/July 2011
